Why Braver Angels? (4 min)

Fellow Michiganders in the movement

percent of WORKSHOP participants feel less estranged or angry with those across the political divide

Bringing families, friends and communities back together.

Braver Angels Michigan is for you who are tired, frustrated and hurt by the widening gap between conservatives (reds) and liberals (blues). We are a local chapter of a national movement to bridge the partisan divide and strengthen the relationships that hold our nation together.

Join in with collaborative workshops for members of one or both sides of the political divide to truly understand one another beyond stereotypes, find common ground, and reduce the vitriol that poisons our civic culture.

What Participants Are Saying

Due to a poor experience attending a “bridge building” event after the 2020 election, I was very apprehensive to attend a Braver Angels Red/Blue Workshop.

However, the Braver Angels moderators did such an amazing job of helping both sides be heard and humanized.  It gave me incredible hope that finding common ground in our politically-polarized country is actually possible!

Braver Angels came into my life at the right time. I’ve had days of discouragement and wasn’t sure where to turn to help improve the division I see across the country and in my own region.

A friend invited me to a Braver Angels workshop, and I’m so glad that I put my hesitation aside to experience this for myself. This has been life changing and I am excited about the journey ahead of us!”
